I love this novel!!

I read it despite of the negative remarks and reviews about it and found out that for me it’s groundless.

Unlike a typical time-travelled female protagonist, even though Yaoyao is strong and not easily beaten down, her mind and her life doesn’t evolve revenge those people who wronged her in the past.

... more>> She is very positive, very quick witted and always managed to find a silver line in a dark circumstances. An admirable MC and makes this novel very enjoyable to read.

ML is an annoying guy. But at the moment, at a repentant mode. We’ll wait on how he can make up to the wrong he did to MC <<less

i haven't started the novel yet but I am perplexed as to who decided that a dark twist on a fluffy romantic cooking novel was a good idea.

im already feeling hesitant

The novel is more of geared towards a josei rather than shoujo, unlike what the novel cover might look like- I personally think it's deceiving. I came into this novel having the misconception that this was going to be more happy-go-lucky with a female lead great at cooking, like a typical airheaded Japanese protagonist. I was pretty wrong, a lot of the novel so far has to do with cooking but cooking is not the focus. The focus of the novel is the romance and the characters- and this is... more>> what I like about the novel. A lot of things are explained in this novel and the author doesn't straight tell us that the leads are falling in love, but shows it. Although they do bicker and the male lead's thoughts are tsundere and condescending sometimes he shows that he cares by the little actions that he does. And the female lead isn't dense, occasionally she acts out- which I think is understandable as she's from the 21st century where women can be much more unrestrained and have a lot more freedom- but she can tell in his actions that he's just a big tsundere and he does care. What surprises me is that she also knows how to play her cards well- when to advance and when to retreat. I wouldn't say she's cunning, but she is pretty sensible and does think things through.

I've been disappointed by Qidian's novels so far- Hidden Marriage, The Bad New Wife is A little sweet, etc. Because it's so god damn unrealistic and what really irks me- is the romance. I don't understand how it developed. The male lead unconditionally fell for the female lead- reading the beginning left me so unsatisfied. And we all know about the realism in Hidden Marriage or The Bad New Wife, it's just not there (or maybe you don't know because you've never read it- but take my word for it.. The development makes the lead way too OP the villains too 2-D, etc.)

I've also been disappointed with cooking novels, Here Comes The Lady Chef was too formulated like your typical Chinese novel plot- people underestimate the MC, tries to humiliate her, gets face slapped. It feels so recycled.

This novel just felt so fresh to me, plus it was a compelling read. I just love the way that the writer writes her story, transmigration is an overused trope and godly cook novels aren't uncommon, but the author does it in a way that makes you want to read more. They mix the plot, things progress in different ways and I understand the development.

Of course it's not a perfect novel. There are bad parts. One thing is that the author makes rape so very casual. I guess for the time- the dude and girl were on their wedding night, it was considered normal. But it still rubbed me the wrong way. I want to give this a 4 star originally but the novel has so many one stars I just feel like boosting it up. To me the novel does not deserve three stars, the development is pretty good. And why is this rated lower than Perfect Secret Love? The rape is even more casual there- the female lead is too unrealistic and the development is honestly so trashy. What's up with people? I don't get it <<less

I really don't like how casual the raping is here. Like, it's barely a side note?

Sure the MC is optimistic but it comes off kinda disjointed? She tries, fails, gets raped, and she's all "Curses, foiled again. I'll definitely win next time!" all lightheartedly.

It feels really off to me. Asides from that the plot is pretty decent, which makes those moments feel even more off.

If you're writing a lighthearted comedy, don't try to brush off heavy subjects like rape dammit!

1- I like cooking novels like any other but until now this book IS NOT about cooking

2- the MC is female so as a female I see myself frustrated with how the story is going. There is not background that explains how she transmigrated. She smack the ML in the face with a booth, she is trying to conquer him with food, she is letting him treat her like $... , and last her plans are stupid. By the way all this just in the first 10 chapter and in the first day of transmigration

3- I stop on chapter 10 when she is pretending to "call the soul" cause I couldn't take it no more, this is not about cooking, this is about a stupid girl with bad luck.

Earnest female protagonist finds love in her rapist, who all along was her one true love as her family and fiance are all villains (not a spoiler), and proceeds to correct ancient china's faults. (-_-)

Ok ok, it's one of those classic chinese josei novels that basically is the same "destined dude falls in love with smart-talking female protagonist that is super-uber-competent and can do no wrong", with a minimal amount of "court intrigue" thrown in for nothing more than an attempt at making the reader distracted in hopes of... more>> making the reader not go "hm... there isn't much plot to the story at all" but instead only makes me say "These plots and setups are really, really repetitive".

Passable development and character depth, nonetheless, and actually some really fun scenes and concepts other authors haven't played with yet, as well as bonus props for having a Female-Protag-That-Needs-No-Man while still making her seem vulnerable at some times outside of normal "Woe is my romance! My heart is too big! I'm too kind! My only weakness is that others hate me for my perfection!" rigamarole that you should expect if you ever read this style of story before (Descent of Phoenix, The Feast, ect)

Would have rated this a 3 star, but the novel, and the protagonist, insists on focusing on the food, food culture, and other aspects of cooking, while still trying to respect modern cooking and traditional cooking. Basically, it gets a bonus star for actually having decent cooking descriptions and (somewhat) accurate view on the food industry unlike other novels that seem only to know of cooking from cooking minigames. <<less

Don't be fooled by the cover! And the title too!

It has mature content for god sake. I do hope they change the cover.

I Iike how the MC is a headstrong girl but always argue with ML due to her personality. But somehow they make up afterwards, and the scene is endearing to me

It's about a girl transmigrated into an ancient Chinese period however somehow married to a bandit. The title due to her one of her merit is cooking in order to capture the stomach of her husband and survive in ancient China by cooking in various places.

This novel is pretty bad.

... more>>
Spoiler
  1. She transmigrates and gets raped, cooks for herself and her rapist, he steals her portions and then rapes her again cause she talked back to him.

The story afterwards is a mix of meh cooking descriptions and bad historical anachronisms that have nothing to do with actual Chinese history. The tone switches between campy porno to foodie adventure to gritty rape drama, often within the span of a single chapter. Zero flow and consistency.

The ML is a misogynistic criminal that hates to show his sensitive side. He only realises he liked her after she "dies" by falling off a cliff. Lmao, after you treat her like s#it, raped her, she cooks for you and you s#it on her cooking as well, now you like her? Of course, you would be sad, you just lost a competent slave after all, cause that's all he thought of her.

Well after that arc, the FL separates from the rest of the cast and goes on to travel on her own, using her cooking skills as a way to get by. We see nothing of the ML until way later in the story, and tbh, this part of the novel is much more enjoyable than the first one.

All in all, not recommended. If you want to read a cooking novel, better read Gourmet of Another World. <<less
